Baby, the rain …

1 Comment

keeps on falling, and falling! Storms have been “training” up from the southwest, mostly south of Interstate Hwy 44, and as you get farther south, the flooding gets worse. We live on the uphill side (west) of the local highway and we can get in and out, but the folks who live on the east side have to cross a creek. The mail carrier said he couldn’t deliver a lot of the mail today because the creek’s been over all the low water bridges most of the day. Our road is passable, though pretty badly rutted, and we’re currently pumping out the basement 😦 Times like this, I’m particularly glad we live on top of a hill!

The new garden has developed its own lake at the corner nearest the house – the ground around it will have to be rearranged a bit once it dries out, so that water will drain past it to the pond.

When I finished the previous pair of socks, I was wondering what to put on the needles next. I found another small project bag, and another pair of nearly completed socks that just needed to have the 2nd toe grafted and the ends worked in, so now there are 2 empty sets of sock needles! I think these socks are Lang Jawoll Cotton – I love the colors, and they feel really nice, so I’m looking forward to wearing them. sock.jpg
